Google News recently started showing information about content creators next to their material in Google Search.
In a November 2 blog post, Google announced that, Google News is rolling out more information about journalists over the next several weeks, starting with English-language editions.
“When reporters link their Google profile with their articles, Google News now shows the writer’s name and how many Google+ users have that person in their circles.”
“For the lead article for each story, Google News also shows that reporter’s profile picture and enables readers to add them to their Google+ circles right from the Google News homepage,” revealed Eric Weigle, Software Engineer.
If you are a journalist and would like to participate, then follow the instructions in the Help Center artilce.
